to be with us. it's nice to close the doors from the rest of washington and the fiscal cliff debate for a little while and talk about fiscal challenges elsewhere. whether it's a good news or bad news, at least it gives us an opportunity to talk about something a little bit different than the news of the day in this final two weeks, i think, before hopefully congress finds an opportunity to either avoid or move or solve some of the fiscal cliff issues and fiscal challenges that we face. and thank you for dick gravich and the work of the panel and the commission he co--led. there are copies of that report that were available when you came in. it's an excellent document that i really encourage everyone to take a close read. it's filled with good analytics in terms of what's going on on the state level. to help us understand. and i fully agree, dick, with your comments earlier about the disconnect. here in washington, obviously, we're facing our own serious challenges. and sometimes those challenges seem so overwhelming that the notion of adding in the layer of complexity to think about the conseque

joins us via skype from washington, d.c. you said there's two words we are not likely to hear and we haven't heard in any of this fiscal cliff debate. >> reporter: yeah, balanced budget. in all of the talks we've heard about the fiscal cliff, we've heard about balance and new tax revenue. but we don't hear balanced a budget. i think -- balanced budget. i think this speaks to how bad the situation is in the federal government when both parties don'tage knowledge that. as for -- don't acknowledge that. as for what's going on, just downstairs from me, speaker boehner started throwing cold water on any report that the talks were moving ahead. yes, there have been an exchange of offers. he said the last couple of days, but he said his phone call last night was a frank discussion about just how far apart they are. with 19 days left until the deadline or nine days until the end of the world, if you are look at the mine cardinal, nobody knows which way -- calendar, nobody knows which way we are headed. >> isn't this part of the we're so far apart publicly. but suddenly, they will announce mi

, remember, they had a plot to murder the saudi ambassador right here in washington. and so when i look at the threat, it's not only this horrible prospect of what would happen to the world if they got a nuclear weapon, but it's what they do every day to try to project their aggressive image and attempt to, you know, influence the world. >> bill and hillary clinton are nothing if not political animals. who knows where the world or the country will be in four years? but it's hard to imagine that if history calls hillary clinton not only to be the first female president, but to be the first husband and wife to ever serve as president and then to maintain democratic control on capitol hill, can you imagine hillary clinton of all people not answering that phone call from history? it's just hard to imagine. >> when she was pressed, she said she would be concerned about her age. she would be 77 years old if she were to be in office two terms. but she has been traveling. she spent the equivalent of a year on the plane. >> just to show you how people are thinking ahead, newt gingrich gave a ver
